[Written I think two weeks ago]
Spring break is now over and the clocks have already jumped ahead. I’m currently sitting in the Intramural Building, chilling out while Logan and Ben play what I’m sure is a rousing game of racket ball. Before that, we attempted some of the climbs on the bouldering wall but were met with minimal success. Very fit people in leggings and sneakers and tank tops keep walking by and making me feel super lazy as I sit on my laptop. It’s ok. I have practice tonight.
Over spring break, I traveled down to Savannah to look at SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design) accompanied by my best buddy Log. I got the rejection letter from RISD (the Rhode Island School of Design) a few days before but its just as well because it’s much easier for me to make a decision. And guess what. Savannah and SCAD are both wonderful! That means that YES! I am going to grad school for industrial design! I cannot wait!
Logan and I flew in on Sunday and got to stay with my aunt in her super cool and old house. It poured all evening. We tried to go to the Crystal Beer Parlor, apparently a local food favorite, but even in the rain it was an hour wait. So we got tacos.
The next morning, Log and I walked around the historic district. I took some pics with my new lens. We ate breakfast at Clary’s which was delicious! Then walked over to the SCAD Admissions office where the tour started. The inside of this building is SWANKY. There is funky decor and bright colors. I got a cool lanyard. Here is a picture of the room we started in. Logan kept saying the tables were “substantial”.
So I’ve been on a lot of tours and let me tell you, the SCAD tour was easily the best organized and most helpful one I’ve ever been on. The campus itself is spread across the city in 80 or so different buildings, most of which have been historic and renovated. So instead of the usual walking backward tour guide, we went on a shuttle. We got to see the fibers building, the animation building, and the industrial design building.
Then we walked around town. I love all the trees.
In the evening, Logan and I went to the Crystal Beer Parlor. I got shrimp and grits and it was so delicious but it has milk in it and my belly was not too happy. It was worth it.
I am so so so excited to be going to grad school! And, that means I get to keep my blog for longer! Yay!
